The Academy of Fine Arts, Munich (Template:Lang-de, also known as Munich Academy) was founded 1808 by Maximilian I of Bavaria in Munich as the "Royal Academy of Fine Arts" and is one of the oldest and most significant art academies in Germany.

In 1946, the Academy was merged with the schools for arts-and-crafts and applied arts, respectively. In 1953, the name changed to its current form.

On 26 October 2005, a new building by Coop Himmelb(l)au was opened next to the old building which was constructed 1874-1887 in Venetian Renaissance style by Gottfried Neureuther .
